Business or Geography degree ?

    • Thread Starter

    Since year 10 I have wanted to become a geography teacher so naturally, I need to do a geography degree. This was the plan. I am VERY interested in geography. However, after teaching many after school classes (to year 7, 9 and 11) I'm now not wanting to be a teacher because I feel under so much pressure and the pay is not the best for the hours they work. Is there many other (well paid) careers you could get through a geography degree ?
    If not, I'll do a business degree because I'm sure that opens up more doors and has a higher salary. I find business incredibly boring though and not particularly interested in doing a degree within this field.
    Any advice, experience of teaching or information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    I am in year 13 and my sixth form wants our application sent off by this Friday. So I'm under a tiny bit of time pressure. I've done my PS towards geography and choices for geography, however, I can change these this week.
